Digitalbeat: Businesses don’t want tablet devices like the iPad

"Lenovo recently released its latest tablet PC — the Thinkpad X201 — and with it came strong words against the iPad and the recent wave of similar “slate” tablet devices. As reported by CNET, Lenovo said that it’s not developing a slate device because it’s customers simply don’t want it.

Keyboards have long been a selling point for Lenovo’s computers (something it inherited from when IBM was still making Thinkpads). according to the company, it was the lack of keyboards that turned its customers off of slate tablets. Lenovo’s Thinkpad line is particularly popular among business users, and they likely weighed in heavily when the company was looking for feedback on slate tablets."
